A Timely Quote

***This is even truer now than it was then. From Focus on the Family:

"We have forgotten God.lincolnprayer2.jpg
We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us."


- Abraham Lincoln, 1863 Thanksgiving Proclamation

Bill Clinton said that President Obama inherited a deeply damaged economy. And if he's re-elected he'll inherit an even more deeply damaged economy.

President Obama's speech was moved from the Bank of America stadium to the Time Warner Cable Arena. They had to move out of the big venue into a smaller place. Like a lot of homeowners in the past four years.

In a related story, Vice President Joe Biden's speech also was moved to a smaller venue — the back room at Denny's, the booth in the corner.

Mexican federal police have arrested a suspect in the killing of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, the slaying at the center of the scandal over the botched U.S. gun-smuggling probe known as Operation Fast and Furious.
Jesus Leonel Sanchez Meza is one of the five men charged with killing Terry in December 2010 during a shootout in Arizona near the Mexico border. One is on trial in Arizona and the other three remain fugitives. Sanchez was arrested Thursday in Sonora state.
Two guns found at the scene were bought by a member of a gun-smuggling ring that was being monitored in the Fast and Furious investigation.

***Fact-checking Obama's speech. Heck, I could have told you beforehand that it would be full of whoppers. And it was.

***Forbes calls this the ugliest mansion in America. I dunno, doesn't look that bad to me. It looks like Joe Hamilton's mansion in "The Preacher's Wife" doesn't it? Love that movie.

***I keep seeing posts on Facebook about how we should stop talking about politics and just make Facebook a lovey, touchy, feely place. Please. Facebook is a social site. I'm interested in my friends' views, even if I disagree with them. My political views are a big part of who I am, so yeah, I'm gonna talk about them. I don't complain about people posting what they're having for dinner, even though I couldn't be less interested. If that's what they want to write about, fine. It's not my place to tell them what to put on their wall. I expect the same courtesy.
